These days the first ladies of tennis tend to rival models in their glam appearance and attire.
So the Duchess of York and her daughters did well to be the focus of attention at a pre-Wimbledon party wall to wall with leggy players, mainly from Eastern Europe and clad in designs by Ralph Lauren, the tournament's official partner.
Beatrice, fast catching up with her younger sister Eugenie's reputation for daring dressing, brought a ray of sunshine to proceedings in a zingy yellow shift, with a playful beaded ruffle down the front.
It was a look that, no doubt, found favour with her beau Dave Clark, pictured right, who was also on the guest list.
Eugenie, like her mother Fergie, was keeping it elegant and simple in an LBD.
There was nothing understated about her moves on the dancefloor, however, where she caused a sensation by cosying up to Sam Branson, the handsome model son of Virgin boss Richard Branson.
